'Derry Girls' season 2: Protestant lads, Sister Michael's judo moves and heartbroken Peter promise a hilarious return for the Netflix show
The show that had its season two premiere in the UK in March on Channel 4, is promising to be a perfect serving of comedy, not just based on the critics' reviews but also the trailer
Netflix is bringing the 'Derry Girls' back for yet another season, and it promises to be a laughter fest. For one, the girls are finding themselves in the company of "protestant lads" and despite Erin's (Saoirse-Monica Jackson) mother's strict warning, the girls will try some "funny business" with them.
In the midst of the Northern Ireland conflict, there is hope for peace in the form of "Waynes" and the parents and teachers do not shy away from exploring it. In the trailer for the upcoming season, we see that the girls from Catholic girls' secondary school are coupled with their contemporaries from the Protestant boys' secondary school, Londonderry Boys Academy, as part of the 'Friends Across the Barricades' initiative.
While the weight of the initiative is lost on the girls, they try to resort to seducing their "buddies" and don’t you know it, the girls find themselves in yet another hilarious mess – the very kind that made us literally laugh out loud in season one.
The show that had its season two premiere in the UK in March on Channel 4, is promising to be a perfect serving of comedy, not just based on the critics' reviews but also the trailer. In it we see the return of some of our favorite characters, including the ridiculously hilarious and unbelievably sarcastic Sister Michael, portrayed by Siobhan McSweeney, and the sexy, sexy Father Peter (Peter Campion), whose presence elicits the funniest reactions and lines from the Derry Girls – most specifically the one Derry (non) girl, James (Dylan Llewellyn).
All of last season, we were teased with the fact that Sister Michael is into Judo, but this time around we will get to see her in action. There is a minuscule scene in the trailer, where we see her get caught in her Judo attire by the girls, and we can only imagine the fun that ensues. Without giving away any spoilers, what we do know is that one of her Judo trophies is going to be a significant prop in one of the episodes in season two.
Meanwhile, Peter's return has all of us thirsty, almost as thirsty as the girls of Derry. We see that he has returned to the priesthood, and it is safe to assume that things with him and his hairdresser partner did not work out. We hope the girls don’t [may be do] give him more reasons to take off the collar.
Netflix library will add season two of 'Derry Girls' to its library on Friday, August 2. Be sure to tune in for those LOL moments.
